Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge

Samsung recently announced their most recent S6 smartphone series! But his time around there is two models coming out, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.

After months of speculation and leaks, we finally know what we’re in for with the new Galaxy S6 range.

As we know there are 2 models on the S6 range the S6 and the S6 Edge.

The most obvious differences between the two phones are the visual aspects.

  • Galaxy S6 – 5.1-inch flat panel, 2560 x 1440 pixels, Super AMOLED display
  • Galaxy S6 Edge – 5.1-inch curved panel, 2560 x 1440 pixels, Super AMOLED display

From a visual aspect, the curve of the Galaxy S6 Edge gives it the advantage on the standard S6. It just looks better. Who would want the standard flat screen if you could have a cool curved screen? Besides the curve on the S6 Edge, both the phones have identical main screens.

The only thing that the S6 Edge will offer you that is different to the standard S6 is side screens that offers extra functionality and can be set to offer shortcuts for applications or custom widgets that push information to the user on features like weather or incoming message alerts.

MyJozi is a huge fan of Samsung mobile devises are we’re very excited to get our hands on one of these phones!

Vivid Images with a Fast, Bright Camera

The GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge are equipped with incredibly vivid, bright and fast front and rear cameras. The F1.9 lenses and high resolution sensors on both front (5MP) and rear (16MP) cameras provide the most superior image quality in a smartphone, even in low light conditions. In addition, Auto Real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR), Smart Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and White Balance Detect through IR provide advanced light sensitivities and crisp camera solutions. Furthermore, a new “Quick Launch” feature give users fast, direct access to the camera from any screen in just 0.7 seconds* by simply double clicking the home key button. These advanced camera functions enable users to capture their most precious and personal moments in uncompromising quality, however and wherever they want.

Super Charging and Cord Free

With fully embedded WPC and PMA certified wireless charging technology, the GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge are setting a new industry standard for universal wireless charging. The devices work with any wireless pad available in the market that supports WPC and PMA standards. They also sport incredibly fast wired charging, 1.5 times faster than the GALAXY S5, providing about 4 hours of usage after only 10 minutes of charging.*

Cutting-edge Core Technology

The thin (6.8 mm/7.0mm edge) and lightweight (138g /132g edge) GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge integrate the most advanced, cutting-edge, Samsung core technology available today. The world’s first 14nm mobile processor with 64-bit platform, new LPDDR4 memory system and UFS 2.0 flash memory provides higher performance and enhanced memory speed with lower power consumption. Moreover, the world’s first mobile 1440P/VP9 hardware based decoder enables users to enjoy high resolution streaming video while also using less power. In addition, the 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen offers users the highest pixel density of 577ppi. Enhanced outdoor visibility with a brighter display (600cd/mm) lets consumers experience content without compromise – anywhere, at any time.

Easy and Protected Mobile Payment

Samsung Pay, a new, easy-to-use mobile payment service that will be compatible with more locations than any competing offering in a single application, will launch on GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge in the United States during the second half of this year. Protected by Samsung KNOX, fingerprint scanning, and advanced tokenisation, Samsung Pay works with both Near Field Communication (NFC) and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology to make it device, merchant and card issuer agnostic.

Enhanced Security

The GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge are built on the upgraded Samsung KNOX, end-to-end secure mobile platform, offering defense-grade features for real-time protection from potential malicious attacks. Both of these new devices are also ready for immediate enterprise adoption, with market leading MDMs and KNOX enhancements enabled at launch to simplify and improve mobile device management. Additionally, the Find My Mobile feature secures lost devices and protects personal information through a number of services, including the all new remotely controlled “Reactivation lock.” With an enhanced touch-type fingerprint scanner, it also provides quick authentication and saves encrypted data in secure device storage.

The GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge will be available globally starting from April 10, 2015 with 32/64/128GB storage options available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz (GALAXY S6 only) and Green Emerald (GALAXY S6 edge only).
